Public Health England (PHE) has published an update to Local Alcohol Profiles for England (LAPE).
The LAPE interactive tool presents a range of alcohol-related indicators and allows users to view and analyse data in a user-friendly format.
The aim of the profile is to provide information for local government, health organisations, commissioners and other agencies to monitor the impact of alcohol on local communities, and to monitor the services and initiatives that have been put in place to prevent and reduce the harmful impact of alcohol.
This release includes new data for the following indicators:
- alcohol-specific mortality
- mortality from chronic liver disease
- admission episodes for alcohol-specific conditions
- admission episodes for alcohol-specific conditions – Under 18s
